Lenten Mission Speaker

On March 13, 14 and 15 at 6:30pm, we will welcome Denise Bossert at Saint Joseph in Winchester to give our parish cluster’s Lenten mission.  As we make plans to attend this event and invite others to do so, it is natural to want to know more about the speaker.
Denise Bossert entered the Catholic Church on August 14, 2005. Her journey began 18 months earlier with the death of her father, a Presbyterian minister. She inherited her father’s personal library and discovered a book by St. Augustine in the bottom of one box. That book broke through her bias against Catholic saints and changed her life. She went on to read St. John of the Cross and St. Teresa of Avila. She had fallen in love with Catholic saints and her life as a Protestant was over at that point.
Her syndicated column called Catholic by Grace has been published in 63 diocesan newspapers. She has also written for Catholic magazines and appeared on EWTN’s Journey Home and Women of Grace.  Ave Maria Press released her first book – Gifts of the Visitation – which is available through Amazon and Barnes & Noble.
Denise is a nationally-recognized Catholic speaker on topics that include: conversion, the Immaculate Conception, the Visitation and Women of Salvation History. She has been the keynote speaker to sold-out conferences (1200+ attendees) as well as the guest speaker for parish missions, Advent events, and Lenten evenings of reflection.
She is the mother of four and the grandmother of three.


  1. Hi, Father Christopher. We will be in Florida during the months of February and March. I am hoping you can record and post Denise’s talks. Blessings. Mary Jo
